RACE ONE, CLASS 5, 1,650m Add Some is down to the right grade and should go better now the blinkers are on. Solar Century will also find this easier and has been running well against better company. Prominence has to be a tierce chance against these. Fortune Link will be running home strongly and could sneak a place at the death. King's Honor is worth consideration as he works much, much better than his form and is blinkered for the first time.


RACE TWO, CLASS 4, 1,650m Our Champion has been running creditably, but finds it tough under big weights as he's only small. Concert Fortune has been freshened up well and is set to run right up to his good form of earlier in the season. Everwell Times caught the eye over too short a trip last time and must be respected. Splendid Feeling is a solid form pick. Grand Way is blinkered for the first time and also racing against the easiest company he's faced all season. Great Intent is improving with each run and a top place hope. Kaapargen has been working well, but will find this harder as will Winford.


RACE THREE, CLASS 3, 1,000m Dragon's Pal has the basic speed to lead all the way. See Page One.


RACE FOUR, CLASS 4, 1,800m Tycoon had no luck last time otherwise he might well have run into the placings. Winged Foot ran really well last time when the waiting tactics were a tough overdone. He loves it round here and is a big chance. Owner's Bliss holds his form well and was very unlucky last time. He should run well. Each Own Way is working well and a solid form hope. Fortune Ring has raced into top form and has to be respected, especially if it is wet. Blazing Ballad is improving, but this is harder than last time. Winning Gain has been crying out for this trip and is set to improve, especially if it is wet.


RACE FIVE, CLASS 4, 1,650m Amazing Win ran really well when almost leading all the way last time despite racing on the worst ground on the rails on a rain-affected track. He's a big chance. Gladstonian is in top form and must surely go close. Amazing Grace could add value to the tierce. Courageous has improved markedly since joining the highly impressive new trainer Ricky Yiu. Keep him safe. Warm Winter has been crying out for this trip and will nearly win. Happy King has improved in that he is more settled, but this is much harder than last time.


RACE SIX, CLASS 3, 2,400m Crown Commander has been running really well and made up a stack of ground last time on a track which was against him as it favoured the front runners. New Airport is guaranteed to stay the trip and has been racing well all season. Wang Tak Supreme has started to come back to himself in his work and is very well handicapped. Jive Boy is in good heart. Champion Mascot stays all day as does Scada though this is harder for him. Valiant Red is a lightweight tierce chance.


Financial Star stays well and is back at the right distance.


RACE SEVEN, CLASS 3, 1,200m Turf Star missed the start last time yet still ran second in a better race than this and hasn't stopped improving. Optic Fashion has a good attitude to his racing and is a likely improver. Leading Lantern has finally come right and won't be far away following his gutsy win last time. Perfect Smile has progressed by leaps and bounds for Ricky Yiu, is now blinkered for the first time and trialled exceptionally well last week. Super Structure needed the run last time and is now fitter. Unlimiteddimension went firmly into the notebook last time, but this is harder.
